Unhappy Back at the dealers ..... again !

Well, its been 7 weeks this time, and the bus is back in the dealers again ....

Got 2 new tyres fitted, and noticed a vibration .. through the seat/bum ... mmm ... wheel balance me thinks ... back to National Tyres ... checked, balance OK.
Vibration still there, back to National tyres again, rear wheels balanced ..... yup... vibration still there ....

Better half says the driver seat is broken ... yup the lumbar adjuster is broken and seat is as soft as a soft thing (think of telling her about her bum being too big ... change of mind ... not a good idea)

Booked into dealer on Thursday 07:30 ..

1/ vibration
2/ seat lumbar support
3/ exhaust heat shield (been an anoying rattle for weeks now)
4/ sound padding from under the glovebox ... again been falling down since last visit to replace the servo

Dealer phones at 16:59 .... car not ready.

1/ vibration is a damaged driveshaft ... replaced, but vibration still there, other driveshaft on order from factory - overnite delivery
2/ Seat is not the lumbar adjustment, but seat frame ... on order from France, will be in on Monday
3/ Heatshield rattle ... nope its the centre section of the exhaust ... replaced under warranty.
4/ sound padding resecured (how long this time ... ?)

Up shot ... car in the dealers until monday at least ...

Warranty claims for

LHS + RHS drive shafts @ 320 each + fitting
Exhaust section @ 375 + fitting
Seat frame @ 560 + fitting

18K miles and 30mths old ... the warranty claims read like a manufacturing Bill of Material

Front and rear brake disks.
Rear springs and mounts
EGR valve and pipe
Lighting ECU
NS headlamp
2 x Xenon lamps
1 x Xenon ballast
ABS computer
CD Changer
Tailgate struts
Sump gasket
Roof rails
Roof bars
Headlight washer
Headlight washer pipes
Front door speaker
Wiper blades @ 1 day old

I'm really starting to get fed up now .... its a pity because its a fantastic car ... when it works

Thank god its still under warranty and its got extended warranty until its 5 yrs old, I dread to think ... but I'm not sure it is going to last that long

Why is it the older I get .... the better I think I was ?
